‘20 Certificate of Excellence

***********Text me at 214-***-9774 for a quick response. I stay pretty busy, but smaller shoots can be done same day.*************** I will usually meet with the client before our catalog shots and go over layouts with the designers. We shoot your headshot or product. I shoot directly to my laptop, and you see the results right away. If needed we retouch and save the images to Dropbox where you and your client can have access to the images. You don't pay until the job is delivered. I love working as a photographer and meeting new entrepreneuring people, let's make you or your product explode. I've been doing this a long time and I think it shows in my work. I do not have a standard price. Price varies from job to job. Headshots are much less expensive than week-long catalog shoot because of the time and staffing needs. C'mon by the 2000 square foot studio at 311 South Pearl, Dallas, Texas. There is always a cold one in the fridge, and red or white wine if you like. Please take a good look at the samples here in my profile, and text me for more specific samples please. You can text me at 214-534-****. Thanks for your time. Paul

What do you love most about your job?

I will usually meet with the client before our catalog shots and go over layouts with the designers. We shoot, and then retouch and turn images back to client. I love being a photographer and meeting new people. I think it shows in my work. I do not have a standard price. It varies from job to job. Headshots are much less expensive than catalog shoots because of the time and staffing needs. Come by the studio, there is always beer and wine in the fridge.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I've always been a photographer, do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life. I don't work for a living. I take pictures.

Why should our clients choose you?

Experience is key, I encourage you to shop around and talk to as many people as possible. Please be wary of cheap pricing. I will not be the least expensive photographer you call. Do other photographers have a studio with secured gated parking? Do they have a makeup area? Digital photography is constantly changing and just about any camera out there can get the job done. No matter how good your camera is, you still need to know about the lighting and taking care of your client.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I do have a few clients I have never met in person. We have had online conversations and the product is shipped to the studio, I shoot a few samples to make sure they are happy with the lighting style, and then we shoot away. Images are usually provided via Dropbox.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

We use PPE devices and gloves and sanitizer are available at all times. Daily temperature checks for staff are also logged during highly staffed shoots. We are lucky enough to have been Covid free during the pandemic and plan to take the vaccine once it is available.

Commercial & Corporate Photographers FAQs

Expand all

Corporate photography is the art of creating photographs for promotional purposes. For example, for your company brochure, website or social media channels. Commercial photographers specialise in imagery intended to be able to sell a product, company values or even portray a lifestyle. They will direct the shot to be able to achieve a particular aim that you have set out for them. For example, how easy it is to train in a brand of gym clothing. Or the luxurious surroundings of a spa.

They will ensure the image portrays your company in the best light, by using their artistic flair to bring the photos to life. Once any touch-ups have been completed, you’ll then be provided with a series of high quality images you can use for all your marketing needs.

Photography is an art form and so creative flair is imperative. The photographer also needs to be able to follow a brief. Usually, photographers will have a portfolio you can browse before you contact them. This will give you an indication of their style and the type of shoots they specialise in. Ideally, the photographs will be ultra-sharp, colour corrected and most of all, get across a clear message that fits your brand aesthetic.

Photography is a very broad specialism, and as well as commercial and corporate photography, there are various other types you can hire too.

  • Product Photography - Product photography involves isolating products to be able to display them on a website or other forms of physical marketing. Product photography requires skill especially in lighting, as items are usually filmed indoors on a white background. Alternatively, the photographer may set up a special backdrop for each product. The goal is to make each product clearly visible for retail purposes.

  • Real Estate Photography - Property is one of the largest assets any of us will ever own, so it makes sense to photograph it in the best light. Real estate photographers will go around each room of the home and take flattering shots for prospective viewers. Real estate photography can also be adapted for staging, which is when the images are edited to show the potential of the property. This is especially popular with new developments that don’t have anyone living in them yet.

  • Portrait Photography and Corporate Headshots - Portrait photography captures the life of humans or animals. Portrait photography shoots are popular with families, couples and for newborn photography. Compared with trying to take your own photos, a portrait photographer will put you at ease. Portrait photography can also be used for passport photos. A corporate headshot is a type of portrait photography showing an up-close image of a person’s face, most commonly used for the staff pages of company websites.

  • Lifestyle Photography - Capturing life as it happens is the job of a lifestyle photographer. Rather than a static image, they will look to bring life and vitality to every shot. It’s ideal for creating timeframes of moments you want to cherish forever. For example, engagements or a pregnancy.

While photographers can have degrees and other qualifications, the best way to check your photographer’s credentials is by viewing their portfolio.

There are some crossovers with commercial and corporate photography, but corporate photography focuses more on company headshots or capturing images at tradeshows and similar company events.

When you’re looking to convey a sense of professionalism, corporate photography can be a huge asset. Compared with using ‘Facebook’ style images of your employees, corporate photography will have everyone suited and booted, and representing your business in the best light.

Sometimes it’s necessary to use stock photography. However, the trouble is the image isn’t original. It might not even best describe what it is that you do, especially if taken in another location where the equipment or procedures are different. By hiring a commercial photographer, the images will better represent your business. They’ll also be unique to you, and will help to establish a sense of authenticity and trust. You’ll also avoid any potential issues with copyright, especially if the images have been taken straight from search engines.

Photographers are usually freelancers who set their own rates. The cost of your commercial photography will depend on your location, the experience of the photographer and how much work is involved. While it’s sometimes possible to pay a photographer per hour, usually they will work for a fee based on the scope of the job.

Absolutely! Though the photo shoot itself will take place in person. If possible, speak or meet with your photographer before the shoot so you can explain what it is you want, and ensure you’re both on the same page.
